Finding the best location for a surf doesn’t have to be difficult, you just need to figure out a quick way to identify the best extreme sports spots. Here are a few ways that can help you keep on top of the weather conditions so you can make the most of the sun, wind, snow and swell.
1 – Listen to Others
If you want to find the best surf, listen to what other people are saying. Some spots are going to have good days and bad, but if you hear rumors that it’s a good day on that beach, go check it out.
2 – Swivel Your Head
Okay, so you have one spot you like to go to all the time. Have you ever looked to either side of that favorite spot? Sometimes a new great wave is right next to your old favorite.
3 – Look Online
There are plenty of places online that can show you current weather conditions, like Google Earth. Take a peek before you head out. It may show a spot you have never considered before.
4 – Search the Path to Your Current Favorites
Sometimes we get so caught up with the destination, we forget about the journey there. Look at the areas you pass on your way to your favorite spot. It may give you a place that looks promising that’s even closer!
5 – Use a Surfing Weather App
Since the surf is directly related to the weather, consider looking at the storm radar of a surfing and weather app. It can clue you into what’s going on, and give you some well-known or even new beaches to consider to catch a wave or two.
